We'll keep in touch as resumes and job opportunities are added. When you use advanced search for a particular job title and city, save your search and you will automatically receive an e-mail message when a resume is posted for that job title. We'll also e-mail job seekers who save their searches.
Members receive the association's monthly e-newsletters containing practical and timely information on issues facing the educational facility managers along with updates on association and chapter activities. These e-publications are also archived on the website so you can view them any time you want.
